Cooking Recipe: Waffles with no fat and no milk.

I really like waffles but I have always been annoyed that the recipes I knew were all using fat ingredients (milk, butter…). That’s a no-go for anyone trying to get back in shape, in a sportive-diet, or simply with lactose-intolerance.

However I recently discovered a fat-less recipe that doesn’t use milk or butter at all!

It might not lead to the best waffles ever, but they’re more than satisfying to me, very quick to make (~20min end to end), light (depending on the toppings obviously). And bonus point: the recipe is super easy to follow even if you’re not a chef.


For 6 waffles:

  • 2 eggs
  • some yeast (roughly half a bag or so)
  • 200g of flour
  • 200g of (unsugary) apple sauce
  • some liquid vanilla

Hint 1: 200g is roughly 7.1 ounces.

Hint 2: You can replace the liquid vanilla by a bag of vanilla sugar. It’s true that it makes the waffles taste better at the expense of adding sugar.

Hint 3: I ran out of yeast recently, so I also tried using some beer instead. It kinda worked, but definitely prefer yeast if you can.


  1. Put everything together in a salad bowl, in whatever order you want.
  2. Mix everything until you get a homogeneous dough.
  3. Cook (they tend to cook faster than regular recipes, so you might want to slightly reduce your usual waffle cooking time a bit).
  4. Enjoy!
